Vinnie Paul Shoots Down Pantera Reunion Again: 'A Lot of People Are Selfish'
Former Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul has once again shot down the possibility of a Pantera reunion featuring Zakk Wylde on guitar, explaining how he's still far too bitter over the feud with singer Phil Anselmo.

The reunion hopes were sparked after Phil recently told Fanpass that "there is a great percentage of me that says, 'This generation deserves [Pantera reunion]. Let's do it.'"

Giving fans a cold shower, Vince has now told Revolver magazine, "If you had an ex-wife, and it was a pretty bitter split, you might not ever want to talk to her again. Who cares if everybody in the family and your friends want you to say hello again? It's your choice whether you want to do it or not."

The drummer further noted (via Blabbermouth), "And I think a lot of people are selfish. They say, 'Oh, he oughtta just kiss and make up with Phil and everything will be cool. And then they can go get Zakk Wylde and everything's gonna be great.' No, everything's not gonna be great."

As far as a hypothetical Pantera reunion featuring Zakk goes, Phil wasn't the only one open to the idea, as Wylde himself stated he'd be up for the task if the rest of the surviving band members settled their differences.

Giving fans the closest thing possible to such a reunion, Anselmo, Wylde and Rex Brown have recently rocked the stage together in Dallas, Texas, performing Pantera's classic track "I'm Broken." Check out the footage below for a part of the atmosphere.
